Lubbock Civil Air Patrol to Host Check Pilot Training


The Lubbock Civil Air Patrol will host a course this weekend.

The group will host their first Check Pilot Standardization Refresher Course on Saturday, April 3rd.

Civil Air Patrol aircraft and crews from around West Texas will begin arriving Friday evening to participate in the course.

The training, which is for CAP check pilots and mission check pilots, covers any changes to FAA and CAP regulations, best practices, safety, and any relevant updates in general aviation.

The training will take place at the Lubbock squadron’s headquarters at the Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport, with seminars beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, and flight activity starting at 1 p.m.

CAP check pilots administer flight evaluations to members using CAP aircraft. Mission check pilots evaluate CAP pilots who wish to fly search and rescue, disaster relief, homeland security, or air defense missions.

Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organization with nearly 61,000 members nationwide.
